The Johnson County Board of Supervisors approved bids for two large-scale repaving projects at its Thursday meeting.

The county will repave large portions of Highway 965 and Oak Crest Hill Road; the projects will cost around $1.8 million each.

Supervisors said they’re pleased with the projects because they will be fully funded by federal stimulus dollars.

The supervisors also approved a block grant for an additional $344,900 to match money spent on buying properties in the floodplain.

Supervisor Terrence Neuzil said the process of buying out floodplain properties will likely be lengthy.

Neuzil said that when he was first elected in 2001, the supervisors were still tangled in buyouts from the 1993 flood. He estimates this buyout process could take until 2015 to complete.

At Thursday’s meeting, the supervisors added another on-call medical examiner for the Johnson County Medical Examiner’s office and approved a new job description for a medical examiner’s supervisor position.
